DVD: Mr Popper's Penguins, For retail & rental (20th Century Fox)


When Jim Carrey inherits six penguins – don't ask – his children adore the flatulent little critters, so Carrey agrees to keep them, even if that means filling his swanky apartment with ice, snow and bird droppings.

Revolting as the premise might sound, Mr Popper's Penguins is actually not too saccharine or offensive, and it never hangs around long enough to let you ponder how ludicrous it all is.
